Actually must admit, I am shocked that it took so long to see Facebook spam to catch on. Then again, the real question is whether or not it would ever become the problem it has on other social networking platforms? Unlike Myspace for instance, Facebook is not a open network waiting to be hit. You really need to have people in your fold for spamming to do much good, right? As it turns out, there have been people claiming to be banned from the Facebook marketplace for spamming. I guess users had better read those guidelines a little closer.
Then you have what is known as the Facebook “Fun Wall”. And for those not so Windows literate, pressing Alt-F4 is not going to help anything short of closing that window. Not a lot of fun when you are working on something web based with nothing backed up in another tab. I can see how this would be a real pet peeve for a number of Facebook users.
What do you think? Can Facebook get a handle on malicious activity early enough on as to not become the throbbing, bleeding mess people laughingly refer to as Myspace?
